Kathy Kemp OTR/L,LSW,CMC
As an Occupational Therapist, the foundation of my practice is based on helping people function as well as possible, at the things they most value. It may be counter-intuitive, but many times accepting help leads to more freedom and independence. As people get older there is often a wish for things to stay the way they've always been, and it can be difficult to accept (or embrace!) what the next chapter brings. Be it an in-home companion, a home health aide,
an adaptive device, or a new living situation, the goal is to support autonomy and free will.
